Our team members are all members of the EHT PAL Enforcers FTC Team, or the EHT PAL SeaPerch Aquabotics team. This Moonbots team is made up of team members from different schools and with a variety of STEM career aspirations, each with experience working on robotics. The team became aware of the Moonbots challenge through FTC, and it was something they were each interested in. The team felt that they had ideas to contribute to humanity's legacy, and the engineering and robotics skill to be successful.
